Start building your bass system today Now that you've seen how to wire subwoofers and amplifiers together, you can knowledgeably shop Crutchfield's extensive selection of and. If that isn't enough loud bass for you, you can always step up to a higher-powered amplifier, say a 400- or 500-watt model. It sounds good until I turn up the volume and then the other mid and high Fender speakers over power louder than the sub. Am I reading this correctly? The amp is about 15 years old but hasn't been used for about 13 years. Checkout our previous post on subwoofer wiring In response to our blog post we filmed a video on some of the concepts contained in that post.
They had been previously hooked up to an older two-channel amp not in bridged mode , which has since broken. Which should put out maybe 7000 Rms? At high volume the amps goes into protection mode and shuts off. I am running them off a Kenwood class d mono amp that runs max power 2000. But if i can get more from the speaker and the amp. My question is can i put there in the enclosure another speaker woofer and to use that stock four channel amp?. If you know what wiring configuration you want to use, click on the link below for a diagram and explanation. Plus I'm not sure what the final impedence would be if I wired 2 up to that mono amp.
What would be my best set up? You can go ahead and wire it up, though, using that diagram with all the 2s changed to 1s. And I have a crunch gp2350 2 channel amp. I know the subs are 4ohm. Wired together to a mono 1-channel amp they can form a , a , or a 16-ohm load. Is something wrong with empedancia change the ohms? Thanks for your time and all your tips I appreciate it. After college, in the early 70s, I joined a rock 'n roll band as the soundman, learning how to operate the electronics that make music sound good.
Can't wait to hear back from you. The sub's built-in amplifier has been optimized to run that particular Mackie driver, so I recommend contacting Mackie tech support in order to get a replacement. I have a 160 amp alternator and plan on buying a second battery. Draw Amps Up to 4 ft. I was wondering if you could help me with wiring a crunch dra1150.
And hooking up a car subwoofer amplifier to a home electrical system with a 12-volt power supply would entail trying to draw more current than most power supplies can handle. I doubt you can find a replacement or repair costing less than a new compact powered subwoofer would, though. That way, for instance if you were running fully active components, you could power front and rear mids and tweeters and still retain left-right balance and front-rear fade control at the receiver. I can tell you that you should never connect subs of different impedances together to the same amplifier - the lower impedance subs will get more power than the higher impedance subs, resulting in unbalanced sound levels and potentially blown subs. This is a very common wiring method used for most single subwoofer installations because the 2 ohm load is stable, yet offers a fair amount of power. You can go ahead and use your sub in your car, but please be sure to secure it so it won't become a deadly flying hazard in the event of an accident. Or you could find a local audio dealership that'll do your installation for a fee.
Perhaps you're confused by the amp's two output terminals. You don't bridge subwoofers, you bridge amplifier channels. We also show you how to check your subwoofer impedance. I need to purchase two woofers for this system. With sub coils wired paralel 2 ohm but i'm not sure, maybe it is 2 ohm bridge stable.
Is this possible or recommended? The question i have, does the capacitor benefit me in anyway since i have a fairly small battery? If you bought your gear at Crutchfield, you could call Tech Support for free help troubleshooting your system. What wiring should i get and at which length? If this is the case I should purchase the exact same subwoofer to ensure the resistance is exactly the same or if there is a difference of even. If your receiver doesn't have a dedicated subwoofer output, you can take the preamp outputs of one of the 4-channel amps and use that for the sub amp's input. If you think your music lacks bass, get one. It is stable at 1ohm and will produce 1,200 watts into that load.
Do not wire your subs to 2 ohms and connect them to those two terminals - it would result in the amp trying to push a 1-ohm load and it'll overheat and shut down. Your mono, 1-channel amp has 2 sets of speaker output terminals, wired together inside the amp, for convenience, and if you hook a sub to each terminal it results in them being wired in parallel, cutting the total impedance in half. Is this a correctly powered setup? Or, you could wire one sub per terminal set, and then run two pairs of wires to the amp, it's electrically the same. . Subsonic filters what should it be turned at along with the other nobs to? Replaced door speakers with Kicker 6.
